Harry Styles, Ansel Elgort and Miles Teller were also considered for the role, but director Baz Luhrmann believed The Carrie Diaries actor was best suited for the part.

The director told Deadline, "I knew I couldn’t make this film if the casting wasn’t absolutely right, and we searched thoroughly for an actor with the ability to evoke the singular natural movement and vocal qualities of this peerless star, but also the inner vulnerability of the artist."

He continued, "Throughout the casting process, it was an honour for me to encounter such a vast array of talent. I had heard about Austin Butler from his stand-out role opposite Denzel Washington in The Iceman Cometh on Broadway, and through a journey of extensive screen testing and music and performance workshops, I knew unequivocally that I had found someone who could embody the spirit of one of the world’s most iconic musical figures.”

First of all, Zac Efron is a human being and can dye his hair absolutely any colour we wants, defying public opinion.

That said, the internet is completely torn over the actor's new 'do, mainly because it's PLATINUM BLONDE. Yes, you heard that right. Like Draco Malfoy-style blonde.

He was everyone's childhood boyfriend after his stint in High School Musical, but it appears fans have become too used to his sweeping brown locks. They've lost their minds at this latest news, literally.

"I might be unstable," says one fan, just so you know that we weren't exaggerating when we said fans had certifiably forgotten their sanity. 

Acquaint yourself with the new Zac Efron, while you can. Get your glasses out, and examine it for yourself gals.

Here's the white-haired evidence in all its glory;

See? We never lie to you.

Squint and you can spot him in this Tweet, a 'lil blonde Zac/Draco innocently ignoring all of the fan fever over a hair colour;

The actor is officially a member of the Bleach Blonde Boys Club, and we HAVE to show you fan reactions because they are absolutely hilarious and disturbing at the same time;

The lewk has been sported by Zayn Malik, Ansel Elgort and, em, Pete Davidson, so it's a trend now.

One Twitter user wrote; "Zac Efron dying his hair platinum blonde is something I didn't know that I needed" and we have to agree with her there. Especially with that beard growth.

Another social media member had to use Oprah's face as a reaction, understandably.

"Don't talk to me unless you have more photos of Zac Efron with his blonde hair," another wrote. Amen.

One woman wants the internet to forget about Trump's wall drama in order to focus on what's important; Zac's hairstyle. Logic level 9000;

Some just went straight in with a proposal, which we're not sure we endorse;

Ice blonde really does get a reaction, especially for Zac Efron fans, we have to say.

What do you think of his new Baywatch-style look, Yay-watch or Nay-watch? (We're the only ones laughing at that joke but we don't care)

We deeply apologise to all selfie stick lovers for bringing you this terrible news: selfie sticks have officially been banned at Disney World and Disneyland.

Disney officials have announced that starting on Tuesday, all Disney theme parks in Orlando, Paris and Hong Kong will have a ban on the popular photo taking tool.

A spokeswoman for the group explained to the Orlando Sentinel that selfie sticks have become a “growing safety concern for both our guests and cast.”

Disneyland is joining a growing list of popular venues that have banned the selfie-taking apparatus. The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Colosseum in Rome, Wimbledon tennis championships, Coachella music festival, and a host of other venues have all banned the stick.

While the world’s selfie epidemic has undoubtedly gotten out of control, we can’t argue that there have been some pretty great photos captured as a result.

So, in memory of the selfie stick, let’s take a look at our favourite five celebrity-selfie-stick-moments. 

1. Is there any possible selfie more 'fashion' than Zoolander, Hansel and Anna Wintour? Definitley, definitely not. 

2. Even the President of The United States is doing it… 

3. Wouldn't it be a downright shame if this beautiful trio couldn't capture themselves at the optimum angle?

4. A bearded Leo DiCaprio has even been seen aimlessly wandering around with his selfie stick. 

5. And last but by no means least, the woman who wrote the book on it… literally. While we realise that Kim K isn't holding a selfie stick here, her deep-rooted love for taking pictures of herself did result in an elephant giving her a fright so we simply couldn't leave it out.

It looks like it’s true love for The Fault In Our Stars actor, Ansel Elgort and his dancer girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan with this sweet news! Despite a break-up five months ago, the cute couple have been spotted together with a source telling US magazine that it is back on.

Ansel and Violetta called an end to their relationship in August due to busy schedules and being apart a lot. At the time, Ansel was doing press tours for both FIOS and Divergent.

A source for the magazine said that he hadn’t been seeing anyone else during the break: “They just missed each other. He didn’t really see anyone else seriously while they’re were split.”

It is reported that despite the break-up, the young couple were in contact the whole time and so things seem to have just fallen back into place.

Since his appearance in The Fault In Our Stars opposite Shailene Woodley, Ansel has been experiencing a lot of female attention, and many of his fans are sure to be disappointed by this latest news! 

Ansel and Violetta have been a couple ever since meeting at New York's prestigious performing arts school, LaGuardia High School.

The Fault in Our Stars actor, Ansel Elgort, has taken to Twitter to talk about what it means to be gay and to clear up a few issues.

It seems certain corners of the media have been speculating recently about the 20-year-old actor’s sexual orientation, something which Ansel, understandably, felt he was the only one who should have the right to comment on.

Using his Twitter account to set the record straight yesterday, the Divergent star said: “Just in case it isn’t clear…I like girls. A lot.”

The actor had been dating his high school sweetheart up until a few months ago when conflicting schedules meant they had to call time on their romance, but it seems the split fuelled reports and rumours which Ansel wanted to address.

Upon making his sexual preference known (not that he should have had to), the actor then went on to say: “Also let me say if I was gay, I wouldn’t hide it. Being gay or straight isn’t bad or good, it just IS. You are who you are. Be true to yourself.”

Very well said Ansel!

Ansel Elgort received threats on Twitter after he was cast in The Fault in Our Stars.

Yikes!

The actor plays the male lead in the adaptation of John Green’s novel, and diehard fans were quick to send him a very clear message.

Ansel plays the character of Augustus Waters who falls in love with Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) after they meet at a cancer support group.

Ansel said, ”I read the book and realised how much it meant to me. After I was cast, I got a flood of people mentioning me on Twitter and saying ‘If you mess up Augustus Waters I will kill you’ and all this stuff.”

“There are millions of people – look at John Green followers – who are obsessed with this story … this book is much more important than the idea of it becoming a movie and movie stars, its about the book [to the fans],” said the actor.

What a brave guy!
